The Outsider has been thrown out in the cold by HBO.
The premium cabler has opted not to renewed The Outsider for a second season. All is not lost though, as the production company plans to shop the series elsewhere!
HBO told reporters the following:
“We enjoyed our collaboration with [executive producers] Richard [Price], Jason [Bateman], Andrew [Bernstein] and the MRC team, and we wish them well in continuing the world created by the brilliant Stephen King.”
MRC Television President Elise Henderson had the following to say about the cancellation:
“We thank HBO for a great partnership in the first season, and for helping to bring in a massive audience who fell in love with The Outsider. We are looking forward to finding a new home for this remarkable series.”
